There are a number of good Thai restaurants in Carlisle but this is definitely the pick of the bunch. The food is excellent, great variety and everything full of flavour. My wife reckons the Thai red curry is one of the best she's ever had including meals in the Indian Ocean. I had beef rendang which was absolutely beautiful. The... More

We were enjoying a wonderful meal and receiving good service until a customer entered the restaurant with a snake! The staff abandoned their duties to spend a considerable amount of time talking to the owner of the snake. Two customers walked out due to waiting a long time without getting served. My wife and my daughter in law were extremely... More

A business partner and I visited on a visit to Carlisle and were very pleasently surprised at the service and excellent food. I had Nasi Gorang and can say it was one of the best I've had. My colleague had the Jungle Curry, this was again really tasty. I would thouroughly recommend Royal Outpost.
